Nothing else is a patch on these

AdvantagesEasy to use, very effective

DisadvantagesDo pull your skin off if you're not careful

"I've suffered with cold sores for as long as I can remember. The creams have helped but they've never stopped the sore from developing and then going all horrible and scabby. I also know just how infectious they are and would hate to pass them on to anyone. Which is why, when the first one since the birth of my son, reared its ugly head I became rather worried. As any mother will tell you it's nigh on impossible to prevent your baby from coming into ..." Read review

Compeed Cold Sore Patch

AdvantagesClears the coldsores quickly

DisadvantagesDoes not make the coldsore look like it's not there like it claims to do!

"...the point on buying the compeed as i did not have a coldsore. Guess what decided to pop up on my face the night before my year 11 prom! Yes, thats right a COLDSORE!! It could honestly have not come at a more better timing (not). I remember sitting in my living room just wanting to cry, it was my prom and i wanted to look stunning, how was i going to look like that with a big hideous lump on my face! That's when the compeed came to rescue me. I ..." Read review

A patch will fix it!

AdvantagesIt works and hides it well

DisadvantagesCan be expensive

"...with a cold and until Compeed came on the market I was forced to leave my herpes exposed with a mountain of white Zovirax cream on top which inevitably I ended up swallowing anyway! Compeed is a totally innovative product and if you do suffer of cold sores I would definitely suggest you to give it a go! WHAT IS COMPEED? ********** Compeed is a medicated round sticky and transparent patch that goes on your cold sore. It basically contains ..." Read review

My lips are kissable again!

Advantages-

Disadvantages-

"...why I decided to buy Compeed cold sore patches - invisible plastic patches that stick on to the site of infection . These boast 7 benefits on the packaging : they help the blister to heal faster, hide the blister, relieve the pain, reduce the redness and swelling, reduce itching, reduce scabbing and crusting, and reduce the risk of further contamination. Applying one of these was, on the first occasion, a little tricky . Although the compact (which ..." Read review

Compeed Patches - Cold Sore no More?

AdvantagesDoes most of what they claim. Definitely worth trying. Good value for money if they work for you

DisadvantagesVague Instructions! Larger/different shapes would help. Don't quite hide as claimed.

"...comes in the form of Compeed Cold Sore patches, manufactured by cosmetics giant Johnson & Johnson. Each patch is a translucent plastic circle of 1.5cm diameter with a self adhesive side to stick to your face, and a non-self adhesive side to… well, not stick to your finger I suppose. The way each patch is packaged is quite clever – each one is not only individually plastic wrapped but also attached to two separate non-stick paper tabs. To apply, you ..." Read review

Finally found a discreet treatment to coldsore

AdvantagesPractical and easy to use

DisadvantagesCan rip your skin off and also doesn't stay on if contact with water.

"...they had available which was Compeed Cold Sore patch. I was a bit dubious at first but I thought I might as well try it as I tried everything else anyway. The Claim: Invisible sticky medicated patch that you applied on the sore on your lip and that will treat every stage of the cold sore, water resistant, help prevent contamination, only one patch needed every 8 hours. The product: The patches are about the size of a 5p coin and they ..." Read review

Compeed Cold Sore Patches - Best invention ever

AdvantagesNumbs Cold Sore pain, Prevents Cold Sore breaking out, Cold Sore is *very* hard to see

DisadvantagesExpensive, Mirror is useless, Incorrect application can be painful, Nightmare on facial hair

"All my life I've had to deal with cold sores, and I would always have to use cream, which not only looks hideous, it doesn't do anything for the pain, it just speeds the coldsore up, and ruins any food I try to eat unless I am very careful. When I got a cold sore recently for the first time in a year or so, I got very frustrated, until somebody mentioned that we have Cold Sore Patches now. This got my attention instantly, as it boasted to not only ..." Read review

A cold sore prevention method that works!

Advantagesit works! no need to reapply frequently as with a cream, relatively discreet

Disadvantagespeels off a little after eating/drinking

"...I thought I would give Compeed patches a go. They were easily available at the local supermarket and cost £6.99- which I think is comparable with other coldsore treatments. The treatment came in a little packet with a leaflet that told you about coldsores and the different stages of an outbreak (the information can also be found on their website here: http://www.compeed.co.uk/) Some people might think it's irrelevent but I found it quite interesting! ..."

Compeed Definitely speeds up healing! (also handy tip..)

AdvantagesReduces pain, doesn't allow scabs to form, heals quicker

DisadvantagesNot completely invisible

"...have tried everything! I think Compeed is the best cold sore cure out there! Creams tend to dry up the sore too much and I still have a scabby unsightly lip for a week to 12 days. But these, stop the sore swelling, stop ANY redness, and NO scab ever appears. The only thing is you have to remember to put them on all the time. And you do get a sort of white look to the sore - so not completely invisible - but any cold sore sufferer will know this is ..." Read review

Compeed

AdvantagesKill cold-sore symptoms

DisadvantagesNone

"...lip 3 days ago........I used Compeed for the first time, about an hour after I noticed the usual signs. This particular spot on my lip (dead-centre) is prone to cold sores, and my usual pattern is that after 3 days I'd be at the weeping/sore stage.............5 days to scabbing over, and 3 or 4 more to clear up. Extremely impressed with Compeed!! Now on day 3 and the sore has almost totally dried up, receded, and is scab-less. Interestingly, I ..." Read review

Allergic reaction to Compeed?

AdvantagesDiscreet, protection

DisadvantagesAllergic reaction?

"Reaction to Compeed I have used Compeed in the past without any side effects. As I suffer from cold sores in my eyes I am fairly paranoid whenever I have an outbreak and Compeed patches seem to offer some protection. However, this time I have had the most awful reaction to them. I applied one before bed last night and I woke up early this morning in pain all down that side of my face. When I looked in the mirror I could not believe what I was seeing. ..." Read review
